Once viewed as a potential home health technology “for the future,” telehealth, or telemedicine, is now becoming a part of mainstream healthcare with surprising speed, high adoption and tremendous satisfaction from both patients and doctors. We’ve heard from dozens of early-adopter physicians who are discovering the powerful leverage telehealth gives them in attracting and retaining new patients and maintaining business (and revenue) continuity in times of uncertainty or temporary/seasonal dips in demand.
The novel COVID-19 crisis is a prime case in point. While stay-at-home and social distancing regulations temporarily curtailed in-office visits – with encounters down by 50 percent for many practices – forward-thinking physicians are using telehealth to continue seeing patients for many different visit types, keeping both continuity of care and revenue flowing. Reimbursements are on par with in-office visits through CMS and Medicaid programs as well as a large and expanding number of private carriers.
We completed a revised edition of our #1 eBook on telemedicine and we’d like to share it with you for free. We address changes to reimbursements and provide dozens of billing updates for CMS and commercial payors. We hope this guide will help you better understand what visits are now reimbursable and how to get paid.
